About

I am a retired high-school science teacher and Sally is a retired nurse. We love travel, natural areas and wildlife, and are experienced wildlife carers. We enjoy walking and cycling and I play music in several different bands. We care

Why we want to house sit

We want to house-sit as we enjoy animals and travel and this provides an economic way to get to know a culture and a country, without being a tourist. We also want to experience and care for other peoples' pets and meet new people.

Our experience

We have owned and maintained our own house for many years and can cope with household problems. We have also lived in rural areas and have experience with a wide range of farm animals, including chickens, ducks, geese, sheep, goats, pigs
